Sacked Whip Fabricant Confirms Mitchell Engaged

Sacked Whip Michael Fabricant who has taken to Twitter in a spectacular fashion since the reshuffle has stuck an helpful oar in to this afternoon’s debate over whether Mitchell engaged and said “I didn’t” swear, or whether Miliband was, well, imagining it:

No camera seems to have picked up the fateful words…

UPDATE: A comment from Fabricant:

“I was not sacked. I told the previous Chief Whip that I could not remain silent in the Chamber indefinitely. I have a number of major constituency issues including HS2. The original plan was to leave June 2013, but when I heard that Patrick McLoughlin was to be moved, I wrote to the PM and resigned! Just wanted to get THAT straight.”

Massive apologies!

Quote of the Day

Responding to Corbyn’s statement that the US should have arrested ISIS leader, al-Baghdadi, John Mann bluntly tweeted:

Baghdadi blew himself up with a suicide belt. An arrest might have been slightly difficult in these circumstances.”
